Lenore Comins and her husband Peter thanked the attendant, Ernest, for his help in a Facebook post. She wrote:
A big thank you to Ernest from the Caltex garage who came to our rescue today. He helped to get a very stubborn punctured tyre off and repaired. He walked right across town to come to our aide and help Peter. A real gentleman who went way beyond the call of duty.
The inspiring story was also shared on Positive Racial Sentiments in SA's Facebook page, Briefly.co.za gathered.
It was accompanied by a photo of Peter and Ernest at the Caltex garage. Ernest's kind gesture won him praise from South Africans who commented on the post.
Marlon Potgieter commented, "Thank you, Ernest. I hope that Caltex realises what you are worth to their brand image."
